"...what was written on the card gave me a new strength to fight the odds."



I remember my first year of starting my clothing boutique.



It was four years ago, but I still remember a lot from that time.

  • I had a loan that I had taken to start my business.

  • I was struggling to get enough customers.

  • I wasn't making any profit.






Every month I had to put money from my pocket to keep the boutique running.



  • Then came the lowest point.

  • I received a huge order that I had to complete by a certain date.

  • And...one week before the due date, my embroidery man left the job.






Where was I going to find a new person to do the job?



  • I only had one week.

  • I was certain to lose the order and probably my business too.






That evening when I was sitting in my boutique, thinking its all over, my eyes fell on a greeting card that I had received on the opening of my boutique.



What was written on the card gave me a new strength to fight the odds.

  • It said, "Follow your dreams with faith in yourself. There's nothing you can't achieve, all you have to do, is remain steadfast and believe."






I did need to believe in myself.



  • Next day, I found a guy to do the work on a contract basis.

  • I finished my order on time.







My boutique is doing very well today.



  • Thanks to some inspirational words.

  • I have framed those words and read them everyday.
